Visit the "City of Mosaics" - Madaba, an ancient city south of Amman. See the famous mosaic map before strolling in the streets and perusing offerings from artisan craftsman. Stand atop Mount Nebo to admire the inspirational view and learn about the early destination for Christian pilgrimage.

First mentioned in the Bible at the time of 1200 BC, Madaba is renowned for its Umayyad and Byzantine mosaics. Admire the most highly revered piece, a 6th-century map of the Holy Land in the Basilica of St George, which contains more than 2 million pieces of vivid stone. Pick up a souvenir or two from one of the highly skilled artists operating in the town.

Next, take a short drive to the summit of Mount Nebo. Absorb the beautiful views over the Dead Sea as far as the rooftops of Bethlehem and Jerusalem. Here, a church marks the holy site thought to be the burial place of Moses. Savor the scene once more as you reflect by the Serpentine Cross, symbolic of Jesus' crucifixion.
